Maple Conservatory of Dance in Irvine, California, will host a Cinderella Ball Spectacular on April 3 preceding the matinee performance of Cinderella by the Maple Youth Ballet at the Irvine Barclay Theatre.
Children ages 5 to 11 and their families will enjoy a light lunch, craft activities, storytime, and a special dance workshop. The ball will be held at the Student Conference Center of the University of California at Irvine, adjacent to the Barclay Theatre.
